A keen chessplayer from Varna,Bulgaria.Had some good results in national junior championships,but now playing just for fun. My favorite player...If I have to give one name,this is Tigran V.Petrosian.Yes he is not so popular,but it's worth studying his games,you'll appreciate his great positional understanding and intuition ,his technique and his ability to explain what's going on on the board in several simple words. In fact there are many other players,that I would also call "favorite".I could divide them in two groups:"elegant positional players":besides Petrosian i would put there Rubinstein,Capablanca and Smyslov and ""dynamic,creative players":Keres,Bronstein,Simagin,Nezmetdinov,Ste- in(Tal is rather particular one)

stanleys: <SkySports> It's very strange, because there is no year of the death mentioned in the text before , simply (1921-?). Maybe there was a copy/paste from the previous line 6, about the player Gumerov, who died in 2011. I will try to get confirmation by other sources whether Mr. ...

stanleys: Happy 99th birthday, GM Averbakh!
   Feb-08-21 Dolmatov vs A Sokolov, 1990 (replies)
stanleys: The key moment was 14...e5?! - a poor decision by Sokolov, creating weaknesses and making his dark-squared bishop "bad". 14...a3!? 15.Rdc1!? (as Dolmatov intended to play), would have been an interesting continuation.
   May-31-20 P Hardicsay vs Adorjan, 1986 (replies)
stanleys: 16...Qc7! is a good move preventing the white's obvious idea of 17.f3 and 18.Kf2, castling by hand.The refutation is pretty
   May-23-20 Gelfand vs P Zarnicki, 2019
stanleys: Nothing wrong.Wins instantly
   May-23-20 Fischer vs Berliner, 1960 (replies)
stanleys: 30...Qe2 could be another option for black, exchanging queens. But Fischer wasn't forced to play 29.g4 as well
   Mar-30-20 Sasikiran vs B Khatanbaatar, 2000 (replies)
stanleys: Really can't understand what Black had in mind, when he played 12...Kxd7?!

stanleys: Such a tragedy :(((( May those young people rest in peace. But my God, why,why,why? a picture of them, just a few days ago -

   Apr-12-19 Bronstein vs Deep Thought, 1992
stanleys: Much prettier conclusion of the game could have been 22... Qxf3 23. Qc7+ Nxc7 24. Nb6+ Kb8 25. Rxd8+ Ka7 26. Ra8+ Nxa8 27. Nc8#
